    I've had this on order since before Christmas from a supplier that gets me everything I want...up until now. They don't say this DVD is discontinued, so I presume it isn't, but has anybody actually got one lately? Apparently there sure aren't boatloads of them in the disty chain... Thanks.

    BTW Trevor H, I didn't forget your e-mail.

    It's entirely possible that Canadian suppliers have having trouble getting in Elite titles, much like the difficulty they often have in stocking Criterions. Either that or Elite is in-between pressings of the disc.

    I had a hard time finding it. I found it in Nashville in June 2002. But it was really hard to find before hand.

    I live in Ontario and Eite titles are very hard to get. I had to special order Re-Animator which came to $60 or $70. I might pick up NotLD from the states. It would be cheaper.

    Thanks for the info guys. Yes, Elites are not commonly seen on the shelves around here. And except for a few common Criterions, most Criterions are quite expensive. These are the two brands best bought in the U.S. it seems.

    Re overstock.com, they do indeed have this disc and a few Criterions I'd like, but they make it essentially impossible to order unless you are in the U.S. Even supplying a U.S. address for delivery doesn't work, you must use a credit card held by somebody in the U.S....guess I'll have to get mommy in AZ to buy this for me...unless somebody knows another place that has it.

    Edit: the old lady comes through with the overstock.com order, looking forward to it at last, thanks for the help.

    This one is still readily found in stores all over the Las Vegas area.

    Check out dvdpricesearch.com and they should list a good amount of online e-tailers that have it.

    My local Frys had boxes of it, at least 50 copies, all for $19.95. This was yesterday.

    I guess that explains where all the copies are... I was surprised to see the local Best Buy had a fair number of the I Spit on Your Grave ME, the first Elite I've seen there. I have not seen any Elites at any other store around here, they seem to be much rarer than Criterions even. We are deprived here... There are no real specialty DVD stores nearby, pretty much run-of-the-mill stuff.

    You know how these things go, looking for a very specific version of a DVD, it's a quest, and searching is part of the fun.

    Edit again: Thanks Michael_Gu for the info. overstock.com comes through with NotLD ME. I did not check around re pricing, but I ordered some Criterions too, much cheaper than in Canada. They also had a CD "impossible" to get here that's been on my list for at least a year.
